Do you know that it takes over 10,000 hours of doing something to consider yourself an expert at it? We have built an estimated 50 Highland Homes by our team here at LivingWell Realty. That may not sound like a huge number to you, but I can assure you we are one of the most experienced teams in DFW. Keep in mind most agents are not involved after the contract is signed. Our agents perform the following on average for each Highland Home we build:
- We assist our clients in finding the right neighborhood
- We assist in selecting the right Highland floor-plan
- We walk 'dirt' with our clients to select the perfect lot
- We negotiate with the Highland sales rep on pricing and all architectural upgrades
- We attend signing
- We attend the low voltage meeting
- We attend the design center meetings
- We attend the 'red line' meetings to review the floor-plan
- We walk the job site weekly and film a video of your home under construction
- We attend the multiple builder meetings
- We attend the pre-drywall meeting
- We attend or at least review the inspection results with you
- We attend the final walk through pre-closing
- We attend closing
If you add up all the hours of meetings, sessions, 'walks' and video shoots we invest hundreds of hours in your Highland Home. I challenge you to find another agent that does that!
Did you know most REALTORS® are never professionally trained in how to work with new construction builders or how to represent a client properly during the new construction building process? Real estate agents are typically taught how to work lease homes, selling an existing home and purchasing an existing home, not new regardless. We are difference. Our brokerage developed a 12 week crash course that is taught by our broker Brent Wells to each and every agent that joins our team.
Our agents are also taught the art and science of new construction by the builder's training department. Yes, the same instructors that teach the builders construction managers how to properly build a new home. Many agents join our firm just to get the new construction training. Sadly, we can't ensure everyone gets this level of quality service, but we can protect you.
When you select a top new construction expert to represent you, you will receive the following benefits:
- A deep dive into the process of building a new home
- A reduction in stress with a valued expert guiding you
- Expert contract negotiation
- Guidance during the upgrade and design center process
- Conflict and problem resolution by an expert with experience
- Video updates of your homes progress
- Zoom or in person conferences or discussions
- You agent attends all meetings (at your discretion) and sessions with the builder
- Suggestions on process, quality control and local home inspectors
- Quality referrals for home upgrades or maintenance after the close
- Help filing your homestead exemptions
- Help protesting your taxes
Have you fallen in love with one of Highland Homes models? Many of our clients do when they tour one of their models for the first time. Highland Homes has been building quality homes in Dallas Tx for decades. As Highland Home experts, we would love to show you some of our favorite homes they are currently building. We strongly recommend purchasing a Highland Home.
Is Highland Homes a good builder?
Heck to the YES! Highland Homes builds a solid home based on time tested construction techniques. This results in a solid and comfortable home.
Do Highland Homes increase in value?
Wow, this is a tough question to answer as a real estate broker. We are trained to never guarantee an increase in your homes value due to a changing market. I will say, that Highland builds in some of the most in demand cities and neighborhoods. They build an amazing home and they are of a timeless design. I will also say, when we sell the homes we helped to build they typically sell for much more than when we built them. So you might have a different experience, but draw your own conclusion.
What is your favorite thing about Highland Homes?
They do not put profits over doing the right thing. I still remember hearing the head of sales for Highland Homes saying that "earnest money is not a profit center for us". Most builders do not give back your earnest money. Period! Thats just one example of how Highland is different.
How long will it take to build my Highland Home?
That is an unknown, but estimate 6-9 months in the 2023 market.
Can we do build to suit home in 2023?
You bet! Post COVID, we can now build homes to suite your needs and desires.
Should I wait for new home prices to come down?
We are seeing home prices trickle down, but they will not crash. I would focus on the home loan interest rates more than home prices.
Will we see price increases on Highland Homes in 2023?
Probably not or very little, we will see modest price decreases due to the cooling market.

Pros of Building an Highland Home
Sales Experience - always and I mean always a great experience. Highland has the best sales team in the business.
Building Experience - very rarely do we experience a construction problem, but when we do Highland is usually aware of it and is proactively fixing the issue.
Home Quality - they build a very good quality home, we actually build our home in Prosper Tx with them.
Warranty Experience - pretty good, not amazing, but good. Quite frankly I have yet to encounter a builder that has a great warranty department.
Client Experience - A+, is there an A++? If so, they would get it...
Cons of Building an Highland Home
- Title Company - their preferred title company is not the best, always request your preferred title company is used. You will thank me later.
- Repairs - every builder fails in this area. Highland is actually pretty good and is very friendly, but it can take a long time to get them out there.
